Re: Boy I Hope I Won't Need This Money...
Corsair XMS2 is not very good overclocking ram at all. You would be lucky to hit DDR2-900 and anything higher than that is just amazing.
XMS2 is around $170 for the cheapest which will hit like I said 850mhz if your lucky while G.Skill HK's for the same price are highly binned PROMOS chips and just about every one will hit 600mhz DDR2-1200.
Not to mention the 4-4-4-12 timings XMS2 are 200 and are completley OWNED by G.Skill HK"s for 190 bucks.
I mean it's good memory but it is not that good in terms of Price/Performance which is why I NEVER recommend it ever....it's went down a lot trying to compete with G.Skill's price/performance but it still isn't anything I would ever recommend.
